The South Dakota Supreme Court has denied a retrial in the case of alleged sexual harassment filed against the former owner of adult stores.
Three women who worked for Annabelle's Adult Superstore in Sioux Falls and Olivia's Adult Super Store in Tea sued David Eliason and the stores in 2009.
A Minnehaha County circuit court ruled in favor of Eliason in March 2013.
Two of the women claimed Eliason raped them and another says he harassed her.
An attorney argued that the jury was prejudiced against one of the women because she sought an abortion after the alleged rape.
The Supreme Court ruled that the circuit court did not abuse its discretion in denying the exclusion of that evidence at trial.
